Metanoia I, 2016

Oil on Canvas, 39"W × 55"H × 1"D


The title of my new series of paintings 'Metanoia' is a word derived from Greek meaning "changing one's mind”. In the work I’ve set out to describe a state of transition between one form and the next through the combination of visual elements depicted within the paintings. This dynamic shift also occurs within the gap between figurative form and abstraction. These semi-abstract compositions are created through digitally collaging, distorting and layering multiple photographic elements which are then synthesized and refined through a final stage of painting in oils.
